Completeness of general pp-wave spacetimes and their impulsive limit

16 Oct 2016 Sämann Clemens Steinbauer Roland Švarc Robert

We investigate geodesic completeness in the full family of pp-wave or Brinkmann spacetimes in their extended as well as in their impulsive form. This class of geometries contains the recently studied gyratonic pp-waves, modelling the exterior field of a spinning beam of null particles, as well as NPWs, which generalise classical pp-waves by allowing for a general wave surface...
